Freedom? Does Huckabee even know what the definition of freedom is? They might be better off buying him a dictionary with the money they raise. After he looks up 'freedom' he can maybe look under 'C' for 'conservative' and see what that means.

Why the 27th of December?

On December 27th 1831, Darwin began his voyage aboard the HMS Beagle.

and...

On December 27th 1945 The World Bank was created with an agreement signed by 28 nations

and

On December 27th 2001 The U.S. announced plans to hold Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

I wish them the best of luck. They may be misguided by their candidate, but Huckabee supporters, unlike those of Thompson & Romney are real, and most are not complete a-holes like Guilliani's.

So good luck, but start talking to Huck about sharpening his knowledge of foreign policy, and about a cabinet position. Your candidate is a nice enough guy, but he really needs to understand that liberty means putting your personal feelings of right & wrong aside and following the Rule of Law that applies to everyone.

I'm tired of hearing that anything is "From God".

Gift from God
Message from God
Children of God
M. Huckabee: "God wants me to be President".

I fully support a person's choice of religion and by doing so I friends from all types of religions but bringing God with you everywhere you go isn't always appropriate... Sometimes you should let God wait in the car. I was sick of when I was Mormon and I'm sick of now as an Athiest (easiest way of saying "Metaphysical Naturalist")

Future bumper sticker:
"Athiesm, Finally an intelligent alternative."

It will replace:
"The Gene Pool has no Lifeguards."

LOL Please don't make false pledges. I love seeing it this low.

"How did you pledge your life and sacred honor for America, Grandpa?"
"Why I clicked on a mouse for some fake preacher and then watched some Nascar."
"And what about your fortune? How much of your fortune did you give?"
"A whole month's child support. Yeah, your Dad's still mad at me about that."

Hucks' army didn't make false pledges with the Blimp. Wonkette liberals did.

However, Hucks' army should learn from what happened with the blimp and try to verify any large donations before adding them to the total.

Or, and this would take some pretty mean "spambot paultards", we could just spread the word for everyone to log onto his site on that day, leaving your browser open ALL DAY, and crash the damn thing! But, I don't think RP would approve of something dirty like that.

But.....this is grassroots...and we aren't really getting a fair shake anywhere but the internet...I don't think Huckleberry's people complain to the MSM on our behalf .....and they are kinda stealing "our" idea....And from there maybe we could move on and, on some "special day", just for laughs, crash Rudipoo's, and the Cackling Witch's, and Barack Winfrey's...etc. But only thru straight surfing, no backdoor stuff. Just a thought.

(I'm usually not this mean...I promise...but just got into a small debate with someone online who apparently loves the "paultard" label and that p's me off beyond belief!) Thanks for listening internets.

Well, from his behavior, we can get an idea about Huckabee's attitudes toward intellectual property rights.

The more I see of Huckabee the more I can't stand him. It is turning into the visceral distaste some have for Bush or Clinton.

Ron Paul has my vote regardless of what happens, even if I have to write him in.

I will in addition actively work against Huckabee If he becomes the Republican nominee.

I think this is a good way to steal some thunder from the Huckabee camp. I wouldn't agree or suggest that we demean his effort though because when it is reported they would spin it negatively. I'd go for a disguised swipe at it like "Don't let freedom Die"

What Would Ron Paul Do?

He would be the stateman that he is and always remain respectful of other people and private property. Any Ron Paul supporter who goes and spams false pledges or spams their forums needs to re-examine Dr. Paul's positions and record. We are winning, we are better than that, lead by setting a good example for others to follow.


A negative action on behalf of a positive campaign can only have a negative effect.
